For Women Entrepreneurs: MEST Hosts A Screening To Encourage More Women in Tech and BusinessPopcorn, big screens, and good conversation afterwards!
On Friday, 21 April, join us for a special one-time screening of this new empowering documentary on female entrepreneurship titled: She Started It.
She Started It aims gives a new face to the popular image of the tech entrepreneur: a female face.
This documentary / film follows five young women over two years as they pitch to VCs, build teams, bring products to market, fail and start again. It also weaves in big-picture perspectives from women like investor, Joanne Wilson; White House CTO, Megan Smith; and Ruchi Sanghvi, the first female engineer at Facebook.
We are so pleased to be one of the first to screen She Started It Screening in Africa to raise awareness about the issues women entrepreneurs face, and encourage more young girls and women to consider careers in STEM and tech fields.
This screening, in an informal setting of pillows, dim lights and snacks, will be followed by a Panel and Q&A session moderated by Kelechi Udoagwu, Communications Manager at MEST and Founder of Skrife.
The panel made up of six influential women in Ghana's technology and business space will be announced soon.
Join us to inspire the next generation of female leaders to dream bigger, and urge today’s generation to support more young ones.

Due to COVID-19, MEST postpones training program to next year and doubles down on growing portfolio companies
At MEST, we continue to be deeply concerned about COVID-19 and have been closely monitoring developments locally and globally. Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our community and we will continue to follow local authority and health official guidelines.
Due to the ongoing nature of the pandemic and the uncertainty that the future of travel holds, we have been unable to conduct in-person interviews and host recruitment around Africa for our next cohort. For this reason, we have taken the decision to postpone the Training Program to next year.
While these circumstances are indeed unfortunate, we see this as an exciting opportunity at MEST to double down on providing support and mentorship to our existing portfolio companies and the African ecosystem.
